looks like i've got the green light to come, but will only be there for the Saturday. Plan to drive there first thing and leave for home about 18.00-18.30. So no pub quiz for me :(

Have room for another retrobiker and bike if anyone has the same plans as me? :D

I would love to go. Would have to do the same as Minty if I do though!!!

In Wales checking some trails all next week, so I might be unable to make it! Will have to see.

Would be nice to see a few of you again.

Really looking forward to this, looking back at the aftermath threads from the previous years makes this look like a must attend gathering! Only hope the weather is good.....

Started to do a few things in prep:

Just fitted a new cassette to the Manitou so gears are running slick is, just can't seem to get the rear mech to shift as smoothly as it should :?

Keeping my eye out for a Camelbak (other hydration systems are available)

Will I be ok running platforms? I notice that most people ride with spds, never used them before :oops:
